Question about 1995 Ford Thunderbird

A/C CLUTCH DOES NOT ENGAGE, A/C NOT COOLING

A/C WAS COOLING FINE FOR MANY YEARS, THEN IN OCTOBER 2008 IT SLOWLY LOST ITS COOLING POWER. NOW IT BLOWS WITHOUT COOLING AT ALL. PUT GAUGE ON SYSTEM, PRESSURE WAS BELOW 15. COULD THIS BE A CLUTCH/COMPRESSOR PROBLEM, OR IS IT JUST A SIMPLE CASE OF HAVING SOMEONE RECHARGE THE SYSTEM AND CHECK FOR LEAKS SO THE SENSORS WILL ALLOW THE COMPRESSOR TO START WORKING AGAIN. HOPE YOU CAN HELP, IT GETS REAL HOT IN SOUTH TEXAS, EVEN IN THE SPRING TIME.

Save your self some money and just get the system evacuated & recharged, there is no point in putting a clutch in (IF) the system is keeping cool now. You never want to put a clutch in with out the compresor anyway.

Ford e-250 transmission problems


My Econoline 250 with 4.2 lost fluid from hose leak, fixed leak everything was normal for 3 days till I drove it on highway. When it went into overdrive lost forward power. Turned off OD and did ok for a while. Lost forward gears slowly, put in fluid, hard to tell when full. Reverse is fine but have to rev up engine to get forward to engage, then everything is fine at lights and such till take out of drive, then have to rev engine to about 2500rpm to engage drive. Help?

No electrical power to AC Compressor. The switch light comes on in car when AC power button is turned on.


  1. Check if air blows with the fan setting turned to high.
  2. Check that the radiator cooling fan engages when the A/C button is pressed.
  3. Locate the compressor.
  4. Turn on the A/C.
  5. Check if the compressor's clutch has been engaged.
  6. If the clutch engages, the fault is elsewhere.
  7. If the clutch does not engage, check for power to the clutch.
These steps might help find the problem.

Help 2008 ford fusion heater and ac stopped working


1) TEST the fuse+ relar of a/c
see the next steps and fix it. God bless you
If so, the compressor is working and the A/C system probably contains enough refrigerant to make cold air, so the problem is inside the HVAC unit. Replace the motor that controls the blend air door (this is a difficult job and best left to a professional since it involves tearing apart the HVAC unit -- about an 8 to 10 hour job!).
If the compressor does not engage when you turn on the A/C, see if it will run by jumping the compressor clutch wire directly to the battery (use a fused jumper wire). If the compressor works when you jump it, and the A/C blows cold air, the system contains refrigerant and the fault is likely a bad A/C compressor clutch relay or a bad clutch cycling switch or pressure switch.
If the compressor does not engage when you jump it, the problem is a bad compressor clutch.
If the clutch engages but the compressor does not turn (the belt will start to slip and squeal), the compressor is locked up and you need a new compressor.
If the compressor clutch engages and turns the compressor, but the A/C still does not blow cold air, the system is probably low on refrigerant and needs to be recharged

The clutch will not engage if it is low on freon. It has a high pressure switch and a low pressure switch which keeps the power from the compressor so no damage will happen. Have the freon checked.

My 2008 WRX has 22K. The clutch peddle started


Subaru makes/sells a good product. Too bad you've had issues with the clutch in/of your WRX. Since you have 25 years of experience driving manual transmission car(s) you should understand that the problem can not be pinpointed without taking the component apart. Your vehicle is under the manufacturer warranty so Subaru should repair/replace the defective clutch. After the WRX is fixored sell it and buy another VW......Peace
